In the past I have used FSA Vero compact square taper cranksets for racing and touring bikes, I would put the perceived quality of the Litepro crank just below that of the FSA.

This frameset was found dumped in a hedge here in Frankfurt and was my commuter bike for 6 years. 2x10 drivetrain with an FSA vero compact. Standard STIs, mini V brakes, not the lightest but it did the job.
